Double Chin Reduction Faqs

What causes a ‘double chin’?

The ‘double chin’ effect is caused when a small pocket of submental fat develops just beneath the jawline. It is usually caused by ageing, genetics or weight gain and unfortunately, diet and exercise often does little to remove it.

How long does this treatment take?

You’ll have your initial 15-minute consultation with your injector and then each treatment is allocated 30-60 minutes. Two treatments are required for the best results, these two treatments are generally spaced 6 weeks apart.

What is the patient downtime like for double chin reduction?

Clients can return to work the following day after treatment, however avoid strenuous activity for a number of days and keep in mind it is possible for bruising to remain for up to three weeks.

What is the difference between double chin reduction and liposuction?

Liposuction removes fat surgically, whereas double chin reduction treatments are conducted with an injection into the area that dissolves fat. Due to the surgical nature of liposuction, more patient downtime is required for recovery.

All cosmetic injectable consultations are complimentary.
